Leaving the car park at Cropston we turned right heading up hill.
A good sky enhanced by a polarizing filter .
Walking around the trees Old John Tower comes into view.
The are plenty of different tracks to take in Bradgate Park.

From Old John Tower showing the multitude of paths.
The War Memorial.
Looking back to the War Memorial as we drop downhill. The sun still shining quite strongly.
Meeting the private road which runs between Newton Lindford and Cropston there were many more
people about all enjoying this lovely February day.
Easy walking for most folk on a tarmac road.
Continuing back to the car park along side the river which feeds Cropston Reservoir. .
